The aim of the HMAS Watson Redevelopment is to address functionality deficiencies and capacity constraints in facilities and infrastructure at HMAS Watson which support demand levels greater than what they were originally designed for. The Project also aims to address high risk issues associated with non-compliant facilities, and reduce ongoing operating costs by rationalising and consolidating similar functions.
